PhD in flexible perovskite photovoltaics

Do you want to be part of the coming solar revolution? This PhD is perfect for you!. Metal halide perovskites have emerged as a new class of semiconductor having important applications in next generation solar-cells. Read more

Quantum machine learning for communication network optimization and security

Post summary. Applications are invited for a PhD position funded by WIT. The candidate is expected to be highly self-motivated, and willing to work in future emerging topics in Quantum Technology. Read more

Next generation components for quantum communications

The. Single‑Photon Group. at. Heriot‑Watt University. offer a four year fully funded PhD position examining aspects of quantum communications, including quantum amplifiers and quantum random number generators. Read more

Structural and electronic investigations of topological insulator thin films

Topological insulators have a unique electronic band structure of surface states. These states have spin-momentum locked dispersion caused by time-reversal symmetry or mirror symmetry for topological insulators and topological crystalline insulators, respectively. Read more

Electric Propulsion Systems for Small Spacecraft

The University of Auckland is conducting research into electric propulsion systems for small spacecraft. We are looking for a PhD candidate to research the miniaturisation of a high-Tc superconducting magnetoplasmadynamic drive and its subsystems. Read more

Emergent constraints on Earths future climate

Project Background . The general circulation models (GCMs) used to make projections of future climate change are vitally important to inform climate mitigation and adaptation strategies, but are also invaluable tools for testing hypotheses about the functioning of the Earth System. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Avian flight dynamics and control - a multidisciplinary approach

Gliding flight is a core mode of locomotion used by owls during predation. As well as being known as silent gliders, recently owls have been shown to exhibit high aerodynamic efficiency (low drag) during gliding, achieved through careful manipulation of their wings and tail (Song et al, 2020, Cheney et al 2020).

Ocean eyes: Developing novel optical chemical measurements of trace elements

Project Advert. Scientific background. The availability of iron (Fe) plays a key role in carbon dioxide drawdown and climate regulation as it can limit phytoplankton growth and the ‘biological pump’ in vast ocean regions. Read more
